Aussi, celui-ci n’a pas été facile à manier en effet les empiècements nécessitent de faire coïncider l’imprimé…Pas simple j’y ai passé une bonne heure ;((
Et l’idée m’est venue d’insérer des biais noirs ce qui a pour vertu de valoriser ces 2 « V » et d’atténuer la continuité du motif ;))) Pour un maintien optimal du biais, j’ai inséré les 2 empiècements à l’intérieur du biais, puis posé et cousu sur la pièce suivante.
For my 1st Papercut piece, I chose the Clover dress or rather blouse, mainly for its panels highlighting the bust that also bring originality and « rock chic » style. Indeed, once cut (pity for the 50 cm of fabric), I realized that the flared skirt did not fit my style.
And to highlight the fabric and yoke, I decided to design a bi fabrics dress with a straight cut skirt, on the same principle as my Must Have dress.
Level : Intermediate – Timing : 4 hours – Cost : €€
Also, it was not easy to handle indeed yokes require to coincide print … Not easy I spent one hour ((And it occurred to me to insert black through which to promote these 2 « V » and mitigate pattern continuity;))) for optimum support of the bias, I inserted the two panels inside the bias, then posed and sewn to the next piece.
This is the main difficulty if you opt for a main plain fabric matched with a different fabric.
Scissors in hands, I decided to limit it to a blouse while remaining on the idea of a dress BUT straight cut for the skirt. After a search from my range of fabrics, I took out 50 cm black neoprene with a thickness of 0.5 cm by The Sweet Mercrerie (used on my Aydan dress) so there is a balance of two materials and to achieve a fluidity of the dress as a whole.
Final personal touch, I flared more neck to remind the two « V » of the bust.
Adjust the blouse and skirt: I made a straight cut skirt and added two folds at the front and rear so as to coincide with the width of the gown. In addition, I gathered the bottom of the blouse to adjust the best two parts.
Again, the key success of the bi-material is the selection of two fabrics thickness almost equivalent to achieve optimum support.
